Google Analytics helps to understand your website's visitors and check the performance of your site.
Before you begin
At the moment, there are two types of Google Analytics properties:
Google Analytics 4 (Measurement ID: G-XXXXXXX) – recommended
Universal Analytics (Tracking ID: UA-XXXXXX-X)
For now, both types of properties are supported, but it's highly recommended to use Google Analytics 4, as the other one will stop processing data on July 1, 2023.
NOTE: For tracking scripts to work properly, make sure that a cookie banner is enabled on your website
